... the other contraption next to the toilet that looked sorta like a toilet, but it was more of a butt hole fountain that eliminated the need for the sand paper du' toilette. I had to wonder why Americans wouldn't even THINK of the butt shower as a bathroom option. Somehow, staring at that thing made me aware that Americans might have once been Europeans...but they are distinctly different in many ways. Especially after ...
... mode because I thought I lost my iPad, meanwhile it was right under my laptop. Then I got a nosebleed. So the night didn't end as well as it began, but tomorrow will be interesting. I'm kicked out of my hotel room at noon and my flight isn't until 10pm. I'd love to explore LA but with all my bags packed and nowhere to put them I'm not sure how that will work out. I guess I'll just have to wait and ...
... I saw them the night before, but not this many! They were just like they look in cartoons...I never thought I would be so amused to see these towering figures. They looked so out of place and so alien-like.
About 100 miles later, I arrived in Phoenix and already wanted to go back to sleep. I drank two espressos and went to a Shell Gas Station. Bank of America had suspended my credit card because I was making so many purchases outside of Texas, and ...
... the Santa Fe dining room but they had a long wait, Pacific Moon also a wait and then we tried Savoy which also had a wait but it ended up only being a 15 minute wait. We received a window table so that was nice. For dinner I had fettuccine alfredo, pina colada soup and the luau pork with apricot drippings. The flourless chocolate cake for dessert was very moist, dense and fudgy with a layer of heavy whipped cream on top. My mother had the same things I did minus the fettuccine. ...
... a big WOW.
Walking on the street of Fame there were people dressed up like Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars character hoping to have a picture taken- at a fee.
We loved CA and found it very interesting. We leave tomorrow for Chicago and very excited to see our grand daughters Kayla and Megan and their old folks of course.
Our trip of 6 months is rushing to an end.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bissell House Bed & Breakfast South Pasadena
Charm and Comfort
This B&B offers charming accomodations, great food, a convenient location, pleasant hosts, and peace and quiet. The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The grounds are lovely. Enjoy.
I stayed at the Bissell House thisi past week and it was abundance and old style grace. The rooms were are well appointed (mine had a tub with jets) and the beds are comfortable. Everything was clean and comfortable.
The breakfast was attractive, including freshly baked croissants and fresh stawberries. The groumet viands were prepared by the Cordon Bleu chef and it was truly a feast to behold.
I can truly recommend this B&B to anyone who is traveling.
If ever you feel at your rope's end and just want to get away and be spoiled, this is the place. I have stayed at this wonderful B&B on two different occasions--most recently after a demanding trip to LA and just before leaving to come back to France. (Where I live.) It had been a very complicated extended stay in LA, so to wrap it up with this deluxe, spoil me, beautiful setting--in a queen bed with the most fabulous mattress ever, jacuzzi tub, a dozen bath salts to choose from and much much more--this was just what the doctor ordered, so to speak. Apparently this inn is under relatively new management and they are doing a superb job. What really comes through is the personal attentiveness and caring. I've loved both rooms that I've stayed in...and hope to try all the others as each one is unique and perfect in its own way. The Hoymans served a fabulous breakfast, way beyond what I could ever have eaten, and delightful guests from Santa Barbara rounded out my stay. Thank you for a lovely stay. I felt rejeuvenated and ready for the long trip home. P.S. I think the Hoymans are offering airport transfers as well. Ask what the rate is and take advantage! Much better than a taxi, that's for sure.
A step back to a more relaxed and beautiful time
This is our second visit to the Bissell House and we booked our third before we left! The B&B is such an elegant yet relaxed home. The rooms are very clean and decorated with such care. Every detail has been thought of to please the guest. The innkeepers are friendly, nice, and great cooks. We really enjoy our time together at the Bissell House and look forward to our next visit.
My mom and I recently stayed at Bissell House and fully enjoyed our time there. Juli and Jennifer Hoyman made us feel very much at home and were extremely attentive to our every need. The house itself gave you the feeling of Old Pasadena that you just wouldn't find in a hotel. And the smells coming from the wonderful trees and flowers on the property are heavenly. Our room was immaculately clean, smelled good, and was very cosy. The small details, like flowers in the bathroom and enviromentally friendly soap, made us feel like these women really care about and are attentive to every aspect of running the B&B. The chile relleno egg suffle that we had for breakfast was absolutely delicious and I don't usually like eggs! To top it all off, the other guests that we had breakfast with were all very interesting, conversational people. We left Bissell house feeling refreshed and rejuvinated.
New owners do not always honor reservations
The new owners took over this B&B a few months ago. In front of other guests checking in, the owner asked me to exchange rooms (mine was nicer and larger), as there were two of them. I complied as I didn't want the other guests to resent me in the intimate setting of a B&B. The owner did not give me a concession. When I confronted her later about not honoring my reservation at its full amount, and for putting me on the spot, she argued with me and treated me with distain. The breakfast was good but not very satisfying. I hope the owner learns how to treat guests.
This Inn is beautifully decorated with many thoughtful touches. There's a variety of complimentary bath salts for the whirpool tub, feather beds that stay fluffy, and the relaxing background sound of your choice (we slept soudly to gently rain). The candlelight gourmet breakfast was a delight.
You will think you are with family when you stay at the Bissell House
I am so impressed with the accommodations and service I am booking another stay for September. The owners are just lovely people. They are so caring and helpful and can cook up a spectacular breakfast too!
In addition, they put out treats all day like fresh squeezed lemonade and home-made cookies and pastries. You will not be disappointed with the mansion style B&B either. It is so tasteful and the grounds are just so lovely. The pool and Jacuzzi aren't so bad either!
